Flux Capacitor is the blog of Fluxicon, the company behind Disco, one of the most widely used comercial tools for Process Mining. Since 2009, Flux Capacitor has published dozens of articles of high usefulness for both practitioners and researchers in Process Mining: practical tips, discussions, tutorials, case studies, interviews, …  But, what is the most useful article for a process mining data scientist?

Screen Shot 2016-06-20 at 20.43.42In order to answer this question, the ProcessMiningUC group, the research group in Process Mining of the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile (UC), has elaborated a ranking based on the opinion of 15 business process management and process mining experts. Each expert evaluated (from 1 to 15 points) the 15 most useful articles for a process scientist according to their criteria, among all the articles published in 7 years.

According to the ranking the most useful article is Why Process Mining is Ideal for Data Scientists. The article, with 136 points and a considerable distance with the second position,  presents a brief description of the field and provides pointers to additional material. The second article, Change in Perspective with Process Mining, presents the capacities of process mining to obtain a process perspective on your data,  while the third, How is Process Mining different from,  highlights the differences between process mining and other areas such as Data Mining, BPM, Lean Six Sigma, Business Intelligence, or Simulation.

The complete ranking is the following:
